Notwithstanding, despite her setback, Teacher Wanjiku dry bones have gotten a life and become one of the most bankable female comedians of our time.

“I love the fact that I got to make Churchill show as my home and Churchill always has a place for me. Am thankful for the respect we both have for each other and the support he shows me even after my resignation. I never take Churchill Show for granted,” she disclosed on Parents Magazine.
